Meet the Cook: You'll find this dessert both easy and very tasty. Everyone who tries it comments on how the orange and plum flavors go together so well and complement each other. We like it best when it is served warm with ice cream. -Norma Enders, Edmonton, Alberta

    I have made this recipe several times. It was my late husband's favorite dessert. Family and friends enjoyed it. Of course, it helps when you have a couple of plum trees in yourbackyard. It definitely deserves 5 stars, in my opinion.
